HID Global is looking forward to a long term investment in a complete range of secure identity solutions. Also, focusing on its global partnership program will be on the agenda.
An increasingly global market for identity and access management is undergoing very rapid development due to technological advances, particularly in communications, where digital mobile solutions are experiencing strong demand. The year 2015 was a good one for HID Global, which has a strong global position and is investing for the long term in a complete range of secure identity solutions, according to the company. The emphasis is on unique offerings, a scalable ecosystem of security solutions, and a global partnering program.
HID Global sees a number of trends developing, including the “mobilising” of security to make it more pervasive and personalised. There will be a more satisfying, mobile-centric security experience at home, in the office, on the road and online. Security will move to a much greater focus on the user experience. A new era of secure connected identities will both make us safer and fuel innovation in how we work, shop and play. There will also be closer attention to privacy issues, and security policies and deployment best practices will continue to be as important as technology advancements, the company says.
HID Global’s focus on user experience & convenience
HID Global introduced many new and award-winning products this year, and collaborated with its partners to solve customer problems in the face of a growing range of increasingly challenging threats. At the same time, through 2016 and beyond, HID Global will keenly focus on improving the user experience and making security easier and more convenient. Their goal is to ensure that security technology no longer defines office habits and personal lifestyles but adapts to them while empowering new capabilities, making it easier – and even attractive – for users to comply with requirements.
HID Global says the industry will now enter its next new chapter after two decades of advances from simple visual ID badges to smart cards, standards-based access control systems and mobile ID solutions. Increasingly, connected identities for a connected world will be used on a variety of devices for a growing range of existing and new applications. HID Global is working closely with its partners to make it happen.
